A Message from the President

On behalf of Local 39 Executive Board and staff, I want to wish fellow members and your families a safe and happy holiday season. I also want to thank all of you for the work you do every day helping our union achieve our collective goal of creating work environments where people are valued for who they are and properly rewarded for what they do.

At this time of year, it’s appropriate to look back, take stock in our lives and show some appreciation and gratitude to all the folks who may have helped us along the way. In that spirit, I want to go way back and thank Edward Filene.
